The Killing of Two Lovers, James Caan

Happy Friday. 

I hope your world is a happy one. I know that's saying a lot in these insane times, but I really mean it. Keep your chin up, people!

Speaking of positive vibes, one of the best things about Reel Dynamite is the freedom I am afforded to write about movies I genuinely like. I can simply pass on a film if I don't enjoy it. If I was forced to write about a movie that I didn't like, I would have to "hate on" someone else's work of art - and that's just not me. Instead, I'd much rather move along to another flick that fascinates me. As I always say: "So many movies, so little time."

So let's get to it, shall we? 

Reel Dynamite
If you're in the mood for something dark and brooding, I have just the film for you: The Killing of Two Lovers. The movie opens with a man pointing a gun at a sleeping couple, and the tension never lets up. It's a taut, coiled snake of a drama. You need to be in the mood for this one, but if you're ready for the emotional turbulence, this is a great indie film worth seeking. Read The Full Review Here 

One Of The Greats 
Argh. James Caan passed away. Sonny Corleone. Caan's acting in the Godfather was a powerful performance (and truly his best), but he was also brilliant in so many other flicks. Misery. Thief. The list goes on and on. James Caan was one of the silver screen's greats. He'll be missed.

Enjoy the weekend, and we'll see you next week.
